Owning a fast food restaurant franchise can bring in big bucks but you need as lot of cash to get started. According to McDonald’s, startup costs can run between $1 million and $2.3 million. The prices are roughly the same for KFC, Wendy’s, and Taco Bell.
As a result, there have been a few chains that have been working on creating lower cost, smaller footprint, restaurants. Chick-fil-A, facing the three month closure of their facility in Newnan, Georgia, decided to make a portable restaurant from shipping containers.

The temporary location, which opened for business last week, is built from five different shipping containers, each of which are specially made for Chick-fil-A. They are taller and wider to create a more comfortable kitchen space for up to 24 team members at a time.
